Comedian and actor Kevin Hart has suffered “major back injuries” after being involved in a car crash with two other people in Calabasas, California.
According to a California Highway Patrol incident report obtained by CNN, Hart and the driver, Jared Black, sustained “major back injuries” and were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment.
Black was reportedly driving Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when he lost control of the vehicle and it went off-road and rolled down an embankment.
TMZ reports that the driver of the car and a third passenger who was female, were found “pinned in their seats” under the crushed roof, with the fire department forced to saw off the top of the car to free them.
The woman passenger did not require hospital treatment.
According to witnesses, Hart was the first person out of the wrecked vehicle, and was picked up by a member of his security team and taken home “to get medical attention”.
He was eventually taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center where received treatment. Jared Black was taken to a different hospital.
The wrecked car was a birthday present Kevin Hart bought for himself just a few months ago as a 40th birthday present.
